Made from close to equal parts Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre, the 2013 Sagacious reveals a ruby/purple color as well as classic Paso Robles sweet dark fruits, savory herbs and pepper in a full-bodied, juicy, lively package. Brought up in 30% new French oak, it's a polished, rich and pedal to the metal beauty to drink over the coming 6-7 years. These latest releases from Law Estate Wines, which are made by the incredibly talented Scott Hawley, are jaw dropping good, and easily the greatest wines to come from this new estate. The future looks very bright indeed. (JD)
Opaque ruby. Sexy, oak-spiced dark berries, violet and candied licorice on the deeply perfumed nose. Sappy and expansive on the palate, offering sweet boysenberry and cassis flavors complicated by suggestions of cracked pepper and allspice. Seamless and energetic on the very long, dark-fruit-dominated finish, which is given shape by smooth, slow-building tannins. Always among the richest wines that I taste from Paso Robles, or from anywhere, frankly, during my annual tastings, this year’s lineup definitely didn’t break that trend. Owners Susie and Don Law and winemaker Scott Hawley make unapologetically extroverted, even flamboyant (but vibrant) wines from the Law’s densely planted 57 acre, limestone-rich vineyard, which sits high atop Peachy Canyon and surrounds their state-of-the-art, custom-built, gravity-fed winery. Exposure to cooling ocean winds along with the influence limestone-rich soils and wide diurnal shifts give this high-altitude site the ability to produce wines that are both massive and elegant. These wines never fail to make an impression. (JR)
